Amazon Prime users to get free 2-hour Whole Foods delivery

The new deal went into effect on Thursday.

Amazon Prime's $99 annual fee falls in this range, but in terms of overall value, there's no comparison, since Prime members also get video and music services, discounted shipping on Amazon.com, and much more.

Amazon have announced the start of free two hour delivery of natural and organic food stuffs from Whole Foods through Prime Now.

In a press release, Amazon says that the rollout will begin in these four cities, but that it plans to expand across the USA later in 2018.

The announcement is the latest in Amazon's integration of the Whole Foods Market chain of high-end organic supermarkets, which it agreed to buy in June for $13.7 billion.

Ade Ogbomo, a teacher in Dallas, said she orders everything from Amazon - except food.

It's unclear if Greeley's title will change or whether his appointment will affect Whole Foods CEO John Mackey's role. An "ultra-fast" one-hour delivery option costs $7.99, again on purchases of $35 and above. For reference, Amazon acquired Whole Foods for almost $14 billion in 2017.

Amazon is putting its Whole Foods acquisition to good use, adding Whole Foods groceries to its Prime Now delivery service. Keep in mind that Whole Foods delivery is only available from 8AM to 10PM, so you can't rely on it for your midnight cravings.

About 7 percent of US households bought groceries online previous year, according to NPD Group.

Analysts see this as the first step towards Amazon truly leveraging Whole Foods stores. Target bought grocery-delivery company Shipt late a year ago.

Some Whole Foods stores already offered delivery through a partnership with Instacart. They are contract drivers, similar to Uber, who sign on for specific delivery shifts at Amazon using their own vehicles, but the routing app of Amazon. They deliver items for Amazon, Prime Now, grocery delivery service AmazonFresh, Amazon Restaurants and now Whole Foods. However, Amazon has big plans to roll this out nationwide very soon. "We're going to be expanding".
